Delong's Button Kit, c. 1905

 This week's Sepia Saturday theme of shoes got me thinking about these buttons I found at an estate sale long ago.  I immediately thought of high button shoes when I first saw this card. Wenck & Co. N.Y. Sole Manufacturers name listed just above the row of buttons is my only supporting clue.  That's my guess on the date.


  1. Soon as I saw this image I thought of an abacus. Love the back of it with the threads holding it all together. It almost looks like a musical instrument.

  2. Man, talk about a flashback here!!
    My mom had things like that in her sewing box, a wicker thing, all plushy inside.
